Not all companies are aware of the importance of natural capital for business operations: all of world’s natural resources, such as geological resources, soil, air, water and biodiversity. Companies depend on natural capital to various degrees; the way a company deals with it could involve risks and opportunities.
Working with Royal HaskoningDHV, CREM has developed an online Natural Capital Quick Scan for companies that operate on national and international markets.
Own operations and suppliers
How does the quick scan work? Companies answer closed questions about their own operations and their supply chains. The scan offers insight into the impact of the company on natural capital and the possible opportunities and risks that follow from it. The results also offer inspiration for taking action.
On behalf of the Platform Biodiversity, Ecosystems and Economy, a demo version has been developed for the clothing, dairy, floriculture, beer brewing and paint sectors. (www.naturalcapitalquickscan.com)
